Cutting Edge Workshop Schedule

A message from the Earth Science Women’s Network

On the Cutting Edge is offering the following four workshops in 2009

Three of these workshops are for faculty (Teaching about Energy in Geoscience Courses, Teaching Paleontology, and the workshop for early career geoscience faculty).  The workshop on Preparing for an Academic Career in the Geosciences is for graduate students (preference given to those who will soon be on the job market) and post-docs.  Please help us publicize these workshops by forwarding this message to colleagues who might be interested in these topics.

The workshop schedule gives links to the individual workshop webpages (including the online application forms).
